Squirl's Nest

Wednesday, March 22, 2006

A whole year!

Wow! It's been a whole year since I started blogging. I'd enjoyed reading other people's blogs before that time. My family, Bucky, Tardist, and Ichabod all encouraged me to start my own.

I thought maybe I'd a have a funny story to tell. Then there's the reason why my name is Squirl. And I've talked about some, uh, interesting neighbors.

There's a friend I'll miss. But a new one to help ease the transition. Along with my sibs we shared with you our family's loss.

I bought myself a camera and had loads of fun with that. There were sunrises, sunsets, lots of flowers, and general silliness.

Along the way I met many wonderful people. These are people with whom I've laughed and cried. There's been sadness, happiness, and, my favorite of course, general silliness. I don't know what my life would be without all of you but I'm glad that I don't have to know the answer.

Thank you all for being part of my life.

Well...I guess you might as well know, Bloggy.

I've decided to pursue my lifelong dream of leaving the rat race behind to follow Neil Sedaka on tour.

Go ahead, laugh if you want. I can hear the jillisy in your cackling. You wish it were YOU on the open road, wind blowing through your wispy locks, chasing after the lavender tour bus.

I suppose you'll all want to come along now.

Wed Mar 22, 10:22:00 AM  
Blogger Mr. Bloggerific Himself said...

Yep, we're coming along. And really, it goes along with my audio post from this morning.

Let's hit it!

Oh wait. Who's driving?

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

I don't know who's driving, or even who's pitching or catching.

But I do know that my verification word is lsgism.

I got jism in my word. YES!

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Uh oh, now it's "pwcckrac" -

I'm on crack.

Wed Mar 22, 11:39:00 AM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Whew. Bucky, I'm glad that the Sedaka tour is out of the closet (so to speak) now. Keeping that secret was driving me nuts. There you go, the secret is driving. And with Bucky's first word ver, we won't even be talking about the nuts. I'm cracking up.

I'm glad you are blogging too!

Happy Blogiversary.

You are one of the people I felt an instant connection with (recall the Robert Jordan discussion), and the connection was made stronger with your love of nature.

I'm happy for you. Happy for all of us who get to read your blog. :-)

Wed Mar 22, 01:19:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Danielle, yup, books and nature, good connections for us.

I hope to be blogging for a long time and enjoying yours and everyone else's.

Happy Blogaversary!! So many of my favorites have quit blogging. I'm grateful that you're still here!

Congratulations, Squirl, on making it through a year of blogging! According to some statistics I saw recently, a lot of blogger don’t last a year. I’m so very glad that you have!

Hi, Nick! Thanks, I really love our little blog neighborhood. I would hate to leave it.

Wed Mar 22, 08:57:00 PM  
Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

All things considered, then, SS Nick - our little group of bloggers has been pretty dedicated.

I sure wouldn't wanna give it up. What else am I gonna do with all these Homies?

Wed Mar 22, 09:25:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Bucky, I think there would be a mass movement (tee hee) if you were to quit blogging. There are a lot of people who depend on you for, um, you know, Homies and stuff. :-)

Kisses and love from everyone here.

And Hermione promises if you come to visit again she wont pin you to the side of the house and slobber on your head.



She will knock you to the floor instead.

Well, I knew I waited too long. Brownies all stale, Bucky stole all the jizz, jeepers.

Happy Belated Blogaversary!!!

Thanks, Jess! The same back to everyone there. And Hermione would be the sweetest, most loving thing while she was doing it.

Chia, better stale brownies than none at all. Did you really want the jizz?
Thanks!

Happy Blirthday, Squirly-Girl!!! My sister's blog is a whole year old!!! Where's the ice cream? Where's the cupcakes?? I want a party dammit, and I want it delivered to Squirl's nest! And all of y'all can just get your hineys right on back over here, whilst I commence singing the "Happy Blirthday" ditty. C'mon, it'll be a sing-along. It'll be fun!!

Happy Anniversary Squirl,

A big thanks from me and all the
sisters for all the support you
have given us. You are a jewel in
blog land.

Here's to another 100 years of
blogging (I dream big)

I am with Eclectic-where's the
cake and ice-cream?

Nikki and "the sisters"

Thu Mar 23, 09:10:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Nikki and sisters, thanks! I really appreciate your kind words. I would love to be blogging for many years to come!

I have peanut butter chocolate cheesecake right now. Will that help until the cake and ice cream get here?

Thanks, you guys are great!

Hey Squirl--happy bloggiversary--I just thought I'd check out who else wished the same--and quelle horreur when I saw my wishes had not been posted!

I hope it was the Best Bloggiversary ever--I'll be glad to see you through the next year! Here's to many more silly, happy, photo-full fun-times in the Squirl Nest!

Anyway, I'm so pleased you stopped back! Thank you!

Oh, honey. I SUCK. I'm sorry I missed your party. You know I LOVE that you blog. I'm just not being a very good blogger, writing, commenting, or visiting, lately. But I sure do love you.

Blogger Squirl said...

Susie, I was, very selfishly, hoping you'd make it to my blog anniversary. I know you've not been well and so very busy keeping up.

I'm so glad you were able to make it. I love your writing, your comments, and you! Thanks, sis!
